“Detail makes the difference between boring and terrific writing. It’s the difference between a pencil sketch and a lush oil painting. As a writer, words are your paint. Use all the colors.”

  1. Absolutely spot on quote I think – but the balance lies in knowing when a piece is done – and has left just enough to the imagination too. 🙂


  2. Good reminder. I tend to use a very limited vocabulary, I’ve noticed. I must make more of a habit to use Thesaurasize, my favorite online thesaurus.


I'd love to hear what you think
